When this week’s Sunday Supper theme was announced as Mom’s favorite recipes I knew right away what I was going to post. I even had the pictures already taken.

If I were to ask Mama what her favorite food was she’d say anything I cook but I know these slow cooker cabbage rolls are a definite favorite of hers.

I first made these eight years or so ago. I had tried other cabbage roll recipes but we weren’t impressed. These were tasty and easier than other ones I had made.

We always eat these with mashed potatoes because the resulting gravy tastes amazing over potatoes.
